Unique health needs means unique emergency needs

Bookmark and Share  

April 24, 2014

Individuals with chronic illnesses or conditions, and those who love them and who care for them, should build a plan that fits with their unique health needs:

  • Do you have an emergency supply of essential medications if someone can’t get to a pharmacy?
  • Do you have a back-up treatment facility in the event your usual place of care is closed?
  • If you are unable to transport yourself out of your home, have you made an evacuation plan based on your unique needs?

Reach out to your community to talk confidentially about special help you might need during an emergency.
